My Escapades
by Odey Akiri

As a young, high school graduate, Paul had a bright future ahead of him, but he decided not to take the path his parents laid out for him. Instead, he threw caution to the wind and moved to the city.

Later, after being diagnosed with an advanced stage of AIDS, Paul reminisces about his life and wasted opportunities.

My Escapades captures the naivete of youth and the sheds light on how Africans react to the dreaded disease of AIDS and its victims.

About the Author

Odey Akiri hails from the village of Ayinkang in Bekwarra Cross-Rivers State in Nigeria. He moved to the United States in 2007.

He developed an interest in writing after reading the works of Nigerian essayists Dan Agbese, Pat Utomi, and Reuben Abati. Their commentaries about socio-economic and political issues in Nigeria inspired Akiri to try to publish his own writing. He prefers to write fiction and considers James Hadley Chase and Emily Bronte to be among his favorite novelists.
